For those that don't know I won GAC this year! It was my third year participating (part of the reason why I wanted a blog, I knew of the legend of GAC before Brad's Blog came into existence) I was incredibly lucky to hit the Mike Trout wood mini one of one. It's a pretty card, I still own it and haven't decided whether to sell or hold onto it (leaning towards holding onto it to the surprise of no one)
In true Gint A Cuffs fashion I decided to score this box the same way! I have already opened all the packs so I know I didn't get another wood mini one of one but that's ok!
Let's start it off with the box topper

One guaranteed hit has been found in the box! Real solid total through these packs. Just to put it in perspective through the boxtopper and first 6 packs of my other box I was at +38. Obviously the big boxtopper hit was a big driver of this strong start.
Thanks for following along!
